Now That I'm Not Gettin' My Teeth Back Anymore

-

I can't comeplain

There's no woman on my brain

And I like it this way

How I'm livin'

Is how I'm dyin'

Thoughts portrain'

What I'm sayin'

I lie in the dungeon's den

Flutterin' lost hopes

I'm about to choke

To death

Oh, when will be thee end?

The silliness makes me laugh

The silliness has me sufferin'

I want some lovin'

But not gettin' it though

I just continue to kick my heart around

Down on the floor

Awaiting my long overdue lover

Well, where the Hell is she?

Does she know she's makin' me suffer?

Waitin' this long?

I guess the jokes on me, huh?

The loss of fun

Has only began to begun

Nothin' about this is right

Nothin' about his is O.K.

Even eggs I should be layin'

Refuse to be laid by me

If I asked some one how I could find love

That, would never train me to find her

What good is "knowin' how"

If the "how" is impossible to learn, how to do?
